Yesterday I had my moment.
I was an Engineer.
Yes, yesterday for one brief
apell 1 trod the path of greatness. I realized the ambition of
all freshmen, to be one of God-

his Kleenex over his head, clipped an aaiemic-lookjnK Engineer

Wet Isn't It
Passing students sneered at
me. As I crouched behind a bush
a big brown collie, looking for
his Satuird&y evening post, mistook me or a fie hydrant.

Flunk English
En Masse
TORONTO — (CUP) — The results of the University College
Pass English examinations were
made known la»t week. "The results startled the Department of
EnigHsih," sailcl Dr. Woodhouse, professor of English at UC. "They
were much worse tluvn expected."
The purpose of the examinations
werer fftsit, to get some indication
of what degree of "knowledge" English the average undergrad posses,
ses; and secondly, to enable the
Department to provide help for
those who most obviously need
special   attention.
Plans have been made to have
separate classes for those who obtained less than 33 pw cent. Tliere
will be five classes of approximately 35 members each.
Just what the longstanding ef-
ects may, be of this revelation of
the Inability of so many students
to cope with English language is
not known. However, Dr. Missel
said, "It Involves a serious consideration of the role of English in
tho university."

Faith  Is The Topic
Of Address By Scot
Rev. H. M. McRury, a recent arrival from Scotland, spoke
to the VCF last Friday on the topic, "Faith and the New Birth.".
Last Chance For
Xmas Employment
At Post Office
Here's your last chance to work
for the Post Office In the Christmas holidays.
There will be a Html registration period on Wednesday, Nov. 8.
The place is HM6, the tl&e, 12:30
to 1:30. There are openings for
about 500 more applidants, so anyone who wants to register ls al*
most sure to get on. The rate of
paye  is 85c  per hour.
He emphasized that a strong belief in Christ ls man's only way to
salvation. He explained the "New
Birth" as the regeneration that
God gives to man when he accepts
Christ, and comes to have faith
in Him.
ev. McRury said that only God
can determine who ls to be born
again Man has no power ovfertWsT
but must trust In Christ. If a man
sincerely believes in Christ, he will
be born of hod, that Is to say, he
will   be   regenerated.
Ho v. Mclturty stated that if man
is to have a true belied* in God,
this belief should'be expressed in
his faith, obedience to righteous
principles, and- in his everyday actions.
Rev. McRuryls talk was very well
received by the members of the
VCF, and his presence was undoubtedly responsible for the exceptionally large attendance.
Three UHC student artists have
won awards i*n the Chrlstm&s Curd
Competition sponsored by the visual arts committee of the university. They are: Maria Hums, first

Profession artist awards went
lo R. S. Alexander, first; and ,1.
S.   Shadbolt,   second.
Because very few entries were
submitted .In the photographic competition and none of them were
of a level tlu'.'t deserved a prize,
the jury was unanimous in making  no  awards.

Employment bureau workers told
Ubyssey reporter that no students

UBC Law Faculty To Receive
Stone From Inner Temple
The entrance to the new Law Building at UBC will be
the scene of a special ceremony today at 11:30 A.M. when
W. H. M. Haldane, K.C, treasurer of the B.C. Law Society
presents a stone from England's Inner Temple to the
Faculty of Law.
The stone, an ancient fragment from the bombed nibble

Columbia Law Society three years ago. It was a token
payment for the contributions made by the Law Society to  ~
the reconstruction and furnishing of the blitzed Inns of
Court in London, g;jv§ ,
The Law Society will make its gift official on Tuesday when Mr. W. H. W. Haldane Lowers the stone onto its
freshly mortared base near the entrance to the Law Building. A bronze plaque has been prepared for the occasion.

A Time For Action
Winter is nearing.
The barrage of government speakers
claiming that immigration is the cure for
Canada's economic ills and the basis of her
«eourity, has ceased.
'      The trade unions have picked. up the
■ball and are throwing it right back.
The "flood" of immigrants, they say, is
creating unemployment. Newly arrived immigrants cannot find jobs, and when they do
so, it is at the expense of Canadians.
This is the seasonal fluctuation of Canadian opinion and policy on immigration. *
It is about time the trade unions realized
that when 100,000 people are admitted into
the country, they represent not only an increase in the, labour supply, but also increased

But perhaps funniest of all was Mr.
Neen's show in Act Two during which he
paraded his ghost staff "capable of taking
over The Ubyssey at a moment's notice."
Under persistent cross-examination from
the "villains" of the piece, Mr. Neen conceded that none of his "staff" had any real experience, but, with all trenchant idealism inherent in traditional melodrama he insisted,
to the huge delight of crowd, "we can do it
anyhow, we can, we can, we can."
The third act a delightful see-saw between the heros and villains about who ought
to resign turned out to be less amusing.
Perhaps straight-man Lintott played his
part a bit too well.
His sincerity, by sharp contrast to the
comediens, was far too obvious.

payers, more consumers," and a larger working force would alleviate the situation.
However, if a policy of stepped immigration is adopted, the government will have
to go about it in a manner, somewhat different from present practice.
Right here, on the grounds df this university, we have splendid example of bungling and erratic handling of immigration.
A group of 80 newly arrived immigrants

At the moment they are tramping the

Numerous student councillors seem disturbed about the lack of interest in activities
Sponsored by the Alma Mater Society and
the diversion of student energies into widespread and varied club functions. This matter
arose over the decision of the Undergraduate
Societies Committee not to accept councils
offer of a uniform sweater design for the
entire University rather than the Faculty
sweaters on sale now.
Certain councilors were also distressed at
the idea of decentralized groups being desirous of printing individual yearbooks. Unfortunately the persons pondering the situation regarded the ambitions of thc smaller
groups as a sign of a sick University. Anything is further from the truth.
To achieve University spirit, we must
have a rival. Before we can hope to match
the esprit de corp of Eastern Universities wo
must be in contact with another similar* institution. Washington because of its dissimilar
scholastic system and atheletic set up will
not serve that need.
Until we have a common cause the University is bound to break into many factions
who will enjoy rivalry and competition
amongst themselves. This rivalry at its worse
is a healthy sign in any institution.
Unlike McGill which rivals the University of Montreal, or Queens, Western, McMaster and University of Toronto which vie
for honours in sports and University functions we have no competition. The students
at out* University have no contacts with
members of other similar institutions and
certainly Vancouver is little enough College
concious to have an interest in other Universities.
A standard University sweater will sell,
and one yearbook will suffice only when the
University students have a common cause, a
common rival, and the resulting ambition to
unite for the glory of the School. Until then
diversified ambitions of clubs and Undergraduate groups should be regarded as an
indication of a spirited student body.

Teaching Profession
Offers Wide Scope
, The profession of teaching offers wide opportunities to the
woman with a university education. „
A  university, degree plus a one *> -	
year education course at UHC is
necessary for an interim certlfi-
acte for high school teaching. After
two years' experience, the teacher
receives her permanent certificate
Salaries range from approximately
$2(Hjo to $4000 per annum according
to experience and position.
For elementary school work, one
requires first year university or
Senior Matriculation and one year
Normal School training. These sftl-
arips range from approximately
JlGuO to $8200 annually by th*e
same  standards  as  high  schools."
Enthusiasm, ready understand-

On Friday night the
UpC Thunderbirds were
smeared   88-59   by   Seattle
No doubt many of the 1200 spectators (ln a gym which seats
000) resigned themselves to the
fate of watching a team faintly resembling the footballing Thunderbirds.
•Many of tiie uneducated ln the
crowd wondered why a Uttle one-
horse college like Seattle U can
completely outclass a teaim representing 0500 students. The
answer is simple, son* coaching*
Start Young
In the mighty Yountghted
States ot America they grab the
kids in punior high and pound
the finer points of the hoop game
Into their elorgated skulls, The
junior high coach and the junior
varsity coach train their teams
In the style of play used toy the
senior team. By the time any ot
die six foot plus players reach
the varsity squad they know the
style of ball played and can concentrate on their shooting, ball-
bundling etc.
Conks (?)
In a recent Issue of Sport magazine there Is a story on a powerful high school football sqaad
in Ohio. The coach of this team
has elfht assistant coaches (this
is . high school, remember) and
has other members of his staff

«?very high school in the U.S.
worth <tts salt In sports competition has a college graduate heading its physical department and
therefore coaching the sohool

thoroughly drilled in tundemen-

for lnter-coleglftte competition.
A Dtfforont Story
Contrast this rosy picture with
us poor natives on the Canadian
side of the border. The majority
of high school athletes In B.C.
who gain any sor tot prominence
in their sport do so because of
thetr own individual efforts,
This ls especially true of any
high schools outside Vancouver.
The result is seen each spring at
the B.C. Inter-lgh Basketball ■
TOurnament. Teams from Kamloops, Victoria, Penticton, Mission
etc. come Into the tournament
built around one brilliant player.
Mission's Ken Bllerbeck and Port

examples of this last year. Port

the title, conipletelj-afolded when
the sensational Hill sprained his
ankle ahd missed the last two
Its A Problem
While this system produces a
few outstanding players it poses
a slight problem for university
poaches. The coach has to take
these individualistic players and
try and fit the niluto a smooth-
working team. And while these
high-chool hotshots are developing a sensational shot of a crowd-
pleasing dribbling style they
sometimes forget the good old
Ask Jack Pomfret or Jelly Andersen what It is like to have to
take players and start right back
with the simple fundementals, a
fact that places them behind the
eight-ball in competition witli
their American rivals.
Another fact that doesn't help
our basketball set-up is the downtown competition. In the rest of
the colleges which make up the
Kvergreen Conference the aim of
every 'basketball player is to
make the varsity team. This year
the Vancouver Eilers are dangling the prospects of a trip to the
Olympics before some of the UHC
players. Other Senior A and Senior B teams have lured players
away from the campus. You don't,
lose .players like Ron Hlsset,
Willis Louis, eirftf Craig without
hurting the 'Hints chances in the
Conference play. Another rival,
scholastic standing, has benched

responsible for holding down the
score to a 7-27 lead for the
